every time i read something about katrina and/or watch the news i'm just filled with fury. and what upsets me more are these people who blame the victims, saying they should have gotten out. it's missing the point completely. those people need only image that this was a terrorist attack with no warning and then realize how unprepared we are. do they honestly, truly believe that the relief effort has been satisfactory? blah. i can't really add anything insightful here. moderate conservatives
